How can energy efficiency save you money?

Becoming energy efficient is one of the keys to reducing your energy bills.

Now is a great time to think about cutting your power consumption at home and to take advantage of the warmer weather.

Residents need to remember to keep their blinds shut during the hottest times in the day to help to keep their homes cooler.

This will also help to reduce customers' reliance on air conditioning.

Another suggestion is to open a window instead of turning on the air conditioner whenever you can.

This means you can take advantage of the natural breeze, enjoy the benefits of the fresh air and reduce your costs, which makes it a win-win situation.

Taking advantage of the sun is another way to reduce electricity prices.

Make the most of the sun to dry your clothes outside and only using a tumble dryer.

The recent change in daylight savings means that there is more sunlight for longer periods.

Residents should be making the most of the extra daylight and using lights inside less.

Now may also be an opportune time to take a closer look at your energy bills to see how much power you are consuming.
